Reflections for Trooper David J. Lane

David Lane was certainly one of a kind. I will always think of David with a smile because he always put a smile on my face after every single conversation I ever had with him; For that reason alone I will fondly remembered him. David was a good man. David will never ever be forgotten.

I served with you from basic training in Ft LenordWood. You were a bunk mate a battle buddy and friend. Us NY guys stuck together. I became a police officer much like you here in NY in 2013 after 8 years in the Army. I’m so saddened by the loss of you and so may other great people I have had the pleasure of serving with. I’ll see you in the end.

Trooper Lane,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

My prayers are forever with Cheryl and the entire Lane Family. I often time think about David with a smile in my heart. I have always enjoyed our conversations while he was assigned to SP Watertown zone. I also had the honor, however sad, of coordinating his funeral arrangements within Division of State Police. Dave was a good man, and he will NEVER EVER BE FORGOTTEN.
